“Smokin out in London, and they handing me fish and chips”

not a life changer, but, still a nice lil’ sumthing for the headphones (grado, that is)..

absorb the beat,realise that it’s probly the best flip of the B.Whizzle drums (no lisa stansfield) youv’e heard, forget the first rap singer, and tune in when Mr “the Truth” comes in..all of the Mc’s come wildly differently, but all shine, including Wale, who’s never really impressed me too much (although,the line about loving his mother, and never getting married says a little too much, also, ELTON)

most improved goes to Young Khalifa Man, sounds like he may of even got his pad out for this..not just rhyming, well i might add, but using some nice inflection to sprinkle some more flavour over this niiice beat..one for the pad, or pod, or whatever.

Mac Miller – Of The Soul

The most “traditional” sounding song from Mac’s recent l.p, Blue Slide Park gets a simple visual…and it works.

as he says himself “if you’re hating on the kid, then you’re out of the loop”..maybe this will please some of the bitter old hating ass hip hop nerds out there..but i doubt it..

and if you, like me, were doing your nut about where those drums are from..don’t sweat it, it’s the Les McCann’s “north carolina”, as used brilliantly on Smif’nWesson’s “let’s git it on”, proof the 90’s loom large in young mac..

anyways, young Pittsburgh Miller gets a co-sign here at the balls..

white boy awesome.

!!NEW English Frank!!

lotta gems in all of franks music, and really good to hear him over more “our” kinda music..

Evidence – You

just doin’ my bit for real rap music. so many gems dropped, and it gets deeper with every listen. i think i’m only really checking for about ten dudes in 2011, Evidence is one of them..and real nice to hear someone cutting havoc’s verse from shook one’s, not p’s…guwan mickey!

 

Stu Bangas Brutal Beats Vol 1

Go in, indeed, sir…

banging..c-plus has got my attention..

lil hotasballs bonus, some behind the scenes action.

P.A to V.A

notts and the roth kid, doing they thing thing over one of the harder beats on the “RAWTH E.P”..the scratching is ill, and so rare nowadays…’llow the training day bit tho, the e.p is worth a look if you like your rap progressing beyond hood fantasy.

“living like i just can’t feel no pain”

you know me, i’m all about the multi culti, and all flavours coming together, so i’m hyped about this..
spitta gets down with creative people..i think damon dash is doing good things over there at dd1772 or whatever.
i don’t hate, i celebrate..
